Both series were recently added to Disney+ in Canada.
We were thinking about adding Disney+, but now that they’re up to shenanigans meant to do nothing but raise the stock price so executives get performance bonuses, we decided to not subscribe after sampling. Our local movie theater is desperate for people to come back to the theater, but every film we’ve seen since public viewing resumed has had maybe 10 people in the theater, at most, and that included ‘Black Widow’.
If film companies continue these practices the theaters will be shutting down in droves, and that’s very sad.
I’m glad Black Widow is suing Disney. Go for it. Breach is breach:

Disney Branded Television has begun production in Los Angeles on Meet the Mayhems. The series is scheduled to premiere in summer 2022 on Disney Channel and Disney+ platforms around the world. It's not clear from the press release if the series will air on Disney Channel in Canada.
Disney+ announced that Marvel Studios' Eternals will start streaming exclusively on Disney+ on January 12, 2022, joining 13 other Marvel Cinematic Universe movies now streaming in IMAX Enhanced on Disney+.
EPIX announced that Godfather of Harlem, from ABC Signature, which is a part of Disney Television Studios, will return for a 10-episode third season. It is scheduled to begin production in New York this summer.
Season 1 aired on Citytv and is available on Disney+. Season 2 is MIA in Canada, but since Disney holds the underlying rights, Disney+ is the most likely destination for future seasons.
Maggie, originally picked up by ABC for the 2021-22 season, now will stream exclusively on Hulu in the U.S., Star+ in Latin America and on Disney+ in all other markets. The decision was made in order to get Maggie in front of audiences instead of keeping it on the bench because of a lack of available slots on the network. A premiere date will be announced later. (Deadline)
Hulu has pushed back the launch of The Orville season 3 titled The Orville: New Horizons to Thursday, June 2. No information was provided about international launch partners or dates. See the press release for a sneak peak. The first 2 seasons were broadcast on Citytv and are now available for streaming on Disney+. (Search for "Orville" without the word "The".)
When The Orvillewas moved from FOX to Hulu in 2019, Seth MacFarlane tweeted that he thought Canada and other international platforms will remain unchanged. That tweet has been deleted and I haven't been able to find any other info, so it's not clear if Citytv will retain first run rights or season 3 will go directly to Disney+.
20th Television Animation and Hulu announced the return of animated sci-fi comedy, FUTURAMA, with 20 new episodes set to go into production in February, with a 2023 premiere. The past 10 seasons are available for streaming on Disney+ Canada.
